Love where you live.

Imagine. Create. Experience. Connect.

Pella’s founding father, Dominie Hendrik Pieter Scholte, was an innovator and advocate of the arts who was fiercely committed to community development and education. Nearly two decades ago he championed a vision of creating a vibrant community where all people could build their lives in Pella. We call this the Scholte Spirit, and it fuels today’s collaborative and elaborate plans for Spirit of Pella Community Projects. Like Dominie Scholte, we activate innovation and honor our community’s rich heritage through placemaking, public art, and live entertainment.

Community participation is the heart of The Spirit of Pella. It is only through the belief and support of individual community members that these visions can come to life! Join us and Catch the Spirit!

“We will build a beautiful Pella.” – Dominie Scholte, founder of Pella
